YSA Design joins Northern Xplorer venture
YSA Design has become a key member of the team planning to build the world’s first zero-emissions cruise ship, following a formal invitation to join the consortium behind the Northern Xplorer venture.
The Oslo-based design firm will oversee key aspects of project development, helping to convert the visionary concept into reality.
NX has already signed a letter of intent with Portugal’s West Sea shipyard to build a first 140-m, 250-guest capacity ship with 125 luxury cabins for the 2026 cruise season, powered by hydrogen fuel cells and batteries.
With original interior concepts by Axel Brox, its design has been developed for stability and performance by Multi Maritime, which also provided the eye-catching side view.
